GEF/SGP involvement:

UNDP has been partner in the program “Installation of solar panels, solar dryers and firewood saving stoves for farmers in Cabo Delgado”. The program is implemented from November 2012 to February 2014.


Within the agricultural sector, ADPP’s goal is to increase food security and income for rural populations by organizing and training smallholder farmers in conservation farming introducing sustainable environmental farming methods.
ADPP has implemented a Farmers’ Clubs development model and reached 16,050 farmers in 8 provinces, training them to improve crop yields by environment friendly soil improvement, low-cost irrigation, diversify crops, unify marketing and transport costs, and create surplus income. The Farmers’ Clubs program has succeeded in doubling the area of land under cultivation and tripling income per household.
ADPP´s approach is family-centered and supports children in all areas of development, including HIV/AIDS prevention, malaria control, education, hygiene, water and sanitation, nutrition, energy, firewood saving stoves, agriculture production using sustainable environmental methods and income generation. The program has reached out to 30.000 families
ADPP has entered into the renewable energy arena with projects focused on bio fuel, solar energy, biogas and firewood saving stoves.
Smallholders in Farmers’ Clubs from 36 communities in Cabo Delgado Province have been mobilized to cultivate oil-rich and drought-resistant jatropha trees for bio fuel (as well as soap and bio pesticides). The project has also established a production center called the “BBC Bilibiza Bio fuel Center”, which also has included a biogas program.
ADPP’s solar energy projects are helping provide light in areas where electricity is not available. In Cabo Delgado and Maputo Provinces ADPP has established 46 solar charging stations with 2760 rechargeable lanterns providing 20,000 people with a sustainable source of light. The charging stations are sustainable and run as local business.
A firewood saving stove project is implemented in Nacala where production facilities have been installed and 24 people trained in producing and selling stoves.
